Bangladesh Sarak Paribahan Malik Samity has vowed to take stand at the bus stands around country in order to prevent any Vandalism from BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami on February 8.
Khandaker Enayetullah, secretary general of Bangladesh Sarak Paribahan Malik Samity, said this at a press briefing on Monday.
“We saw that public transport owners were victimized by the vandalism before, but this time 10-15,000 workers and owners will be present to resist any kind of attempt for sabotage,” Enayetullah told the press.
Concerning any extra security threats ahead of the verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on February 8, Enayetullah said: “Owners and workers will take position in different terminals in the capital including Fulbaria, Mohakhali, Sayedabad. Any vandalism attempt from BNP-Jamaat will be thwarted. Such preparations are also taking place in stands outside Dhaka.”
He also said: “The owners are always victims of attacks made by BNP Jammat. Previously around 10,000 vehicles were burned during political violence. We are open to peaceful protest but always question such protest which promotes violence.”
